The Duchess Of Cambridge Joins Family Action To Mark New Patronage

The Duchess of Cambridge is getting into the Christmas spirit!

The mum-of-three joined young children on a visit to Peterley Manor Farm in Buckinghamshire on Wednesday morning to shop for Christmas trees and take part in some festive cheer. Her outing this morning with Family Action was preceded with the announcement that Kate has now assumed patronage of the charity, a role Queen Elizabeth had previously held for 65 years.

For the outing on Wednesday, Kate looked festive in a red puffer jacket, a green knit sweater, skinny jeans and brown ankle boots. Of course, the duchess made even skinny jeans look regal, with her sapphire engagement ring!

Over the past year, Kate has been gradually becoming more involved in the organisation, including meeting with them at the Chelsea Flower Show in May.

"I have seen the Duchess's passionate support for disadvantaged families first hand and have been impressed by her leadership in understanding and promoting the vital importance of the Early Years. Family Action looks forward to working with the Duchess in the years to come," said David Holmes, the chief executive of Family Action.

On Tuesday, the royal joined Queen Elizabeth to host a reception at Buckingham Palace in honour of the 70th birthday of NATO. The duchess wore a similarly colored green dress for the occasion by Alexander McQueen, although it was initially reported to be by Emilia Wickstead.
